This WTP adaption of Charles Dickens, A CHRISTMAS CAROL is the story of a bitter old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformation into a gentler, kinder man after visitations by various ghosts. Join us for this uplifting holiday story of redemption, magic, and hope.  Director, Ben Rush says, “This is our third annual production, but it is a whole new experience. A brand new set design, the largest cast, and more spooky magic are sure to make this year’s ‘Carol’ a very special one.”

This production class began rehearsing in October, and features a talented cast limited to only those students selected for roles after an audition. The production has a cast of 22 students between the ages of eight and fourteen who bring to life this classic ghost story.
